Suehiro discusses more of his war experiences, including receiving a wound on his leg from shrapnel. He would help get his friends that was also wounded, back to safety and would head to the Red Cross to take care of his own wound, taking many penicillin shots over his course of injury. He had a strong desire to rejoin his friends at the front line but would be denied due to disability, he would end up in the hospital for a year and head back home to Hawaii for his discharge. He would receive a Purple Heart, amongst other medals for his bravery overseas. When arriving home in Hawaii, his parents were very happy to see him and the end of the war would come soon after. He would work, making good money before quitting and moving to Japan.
